Biology Minor

The Biology Minor consists of 20 hours that give students a chance to explore the life sciences beyond core requirements. Only courses recommended for science majors count toward the Biology Minor.

Required Courses (eight hours)

At least three hours are chosen from the following four sophomore-level courses


Sophomore level hours in excess of the required three may count toward the minor, but lower-division courses other than those listed will not count toward the Biology Minor. 

To complete the minor, students must take at least nine additional hours.

At least one course above the first-year level must include a laboratory component. A minor requires at least six hours of upper-division (3000-4000 level) courses. Students may take most upper-division courses with either the BIOL or BIMS prefix (if they have appropriate prerequisites), but the following courses will not count toward the Biology Minor:

Total: 20 semester hours
